comment I want to move /run/shm to my /home directory
That's a REALLY wierd partition layout, and fairly badly planned. There's little reason to split off non critical OS stuff (or for that matter anything but /home and maybe /etc). IMO splitting up a system into different mountpoints is really a relic of tiny old drives.

comment Ubuntu through HDanywhere video Matrix
Some essential details would be nice - which specific version of ubuntu? What's your video matrix connected to your TV via? What is a video matrix? Does it need drivers?

comment Circular references abound on Ubuntu software, other Ubuntu.com pages
I'd also add your question is cut off, and AU's essentially community support, rather than something owned/run by canonical proper.

comment How do I increase the total size of my storage devices?
It makes sense to reuse as much as they can.That however doesn't include the storage. They use (roughly) the same boards and controllers, storage chips or hard drives of the correct size, and if needed, firmware specific to the parts they chose to use.

While it would be nice to assume SO will remain unchanged in perpetuity, should the other question/answer be deleted for whatever reason, your answer becomes useless.

I'd also add these are different versions, and have distinct repos, and mixing them is a VERY bad idea

comment new install on hard drive error
While the hard drive does belong in a museum, I suspect your problem lies elsewhere - I'd guess in the graphics stack, since drm and fbcon refer to bits of the graphics subsystem. To that end, you may want to give information on the rest of your system.

comment What happened to ChmSee in 14.04?
The why's are unanswerable. I suspect this question would be a lot more awesome if you focused on "How do I get this useful app back" aspect of things.

comment ubuntu on dell Latitude C800
I hate to say this, but something like slackware or vector linux light (I used to run it on a similar laptop years ago) might be a good option here.
